How was everyone’s Christmas? This is what our Christmas morning looks like (HERE).  I’ve made 4 Pans of homemade Almond Roca (HERE). Almond roca candy is my husband’s favorite candy recipe to eat at Christmas time. 

I have always loved the “trench coat” look and have always loved Nordstrom… combining the two is a match made in heaven. Honestly, this is such a beautiful trench and comes across as much more expensive/ high end than it actually is. It kind of reminds me of some styles of Burberry trenches at the fraction of the price. I was hesitant to get this online because of sizing, I didn’t know if I should go with the regular or petite. I ended up doing the XS/ Petite and it fits me wonderfully ( I am 5’2″, 110 lbs) I will say though that the sleeves are quite bit long, barely noticeable to other people but I picked up on it when I tried the coat on, but it was fine with me because I can’t stand sleeves that are too short. I would definitely recommend this coat to any girl, it is so timeless.

What are you looking forward to in 2017?

As always, thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful Holidays!

    Great trench. I love how you styled it. I have been wanting a Burberry trench for many many years, but there are so many styles and are quite the investment. This one is a beautiful classic one. The pops of color make it all come together so much more trendy and stylishly, too. 🙂

    Trench Coats are a must have . I love the fact that they can be worn in very cold weather and in spring. You have styled your trench really well and the pop of colour is perfect. Compliments of the season to you and yours.x

    Loved the trench coat and the scarf, plus the bag! You look so beautiful, always so trendy and chic! I am 5″3 and I always have problems with sleeves, but in my case, I prefer shorter sleeves. I hope you have a very beautiful new year’s eve, and that you share with us your outfit! I’d like to wish you a great new year, with love, with your nice and beautiful family, health, peace, some relaxation, fun, friendship, luck and only the best! Hope you have a fantastic new year!
